    I tried to tune in to my favorite stations and came to the realization that the next 2 week of nighttime talk radio is going to su_k. The Radio Networks are covering both conventions all night. :(

    As an example WWL is talking about Michelle Obama's speech while playing "Isn't She Lovely" By Stevie Wonder. Gag Me!!!

    As an aside, what stations do you listen to?
    I listen to KAO in Denver, WSB in Atlanta, WWL in New Orleans, WBAP in Dallas / Fort Worth. Theres a couple of others but I'll save them for later.

    My local station starts off with a local program, and it usually sucks except when “The Shooting Bench” is on. As talked about in another thread about Bug Out Bags.

    Then it’s Laura Ingram, then Rush. This is followed by a partial show of Neil Bortz, > O’Riley > Sean and by that time I’m home.

    PBS you say?
    Isn’t that the tax paid for liberal machine?

    I listen to 700 WLW, and 550 WKRC in Cincinnati mostly.

    On occasion, I will listen to the local black power station to see what they are thinking. Many on that station seem to believe the "white man is the devil!"

    When we had a Air America station I would listen to it if they had an interesting topic on. Their hosts weren't very good, I can see why they were such a failure.

    Paid for by listeners and yes it is liberal in the dictionary definition of the term. I like it because normally both sides of the political spectrum are represented unlike some right wing talk shows. I don't agree with all they say but I like to hear both sides of a discussion. In that respect they are rather neutral.

    I respectfully beg to DIFFER.

    Any PBS station I've ever heard, at news time and commentary time, is anything BUT NEUTRAL. They have been and are worse than CNN, the NYT and Time all combined !!!!!!

    I listen to PBS merely because that is where I can get Classical Music during the day and some evenings.

    When it comes to news time, I turn them off. Listened to their news for years in the car and learned with each passing day to turn it off in order to keep my blood pressure down. I always thought I was listening to Radio Moscow rather than an American Tax funded propaganda machine..... :( :(

    I agree that NPR over the years has been almost totally biased toward the liberal side. While driving cross- country sometimes NPR is the only thing I could get on the radio & I listened till I couldn't stand it another minute.

    I have noticed however that during these months leading up to the election NPR has actually offered both points of view & the conservative side has been done really well without backhanded coments etc. I've been amazed.

    The callers all still seem to be liberal wakos still though:eek:

    I listen to the local NPR in order to hear decent music during the day. At least their commercials are 'low key'. I don't send in a yearly donation, feeling that my % of tax dollars more than pay for the % of the days that I listen.

    I agree Marlin, turning off their 'news' is like taking a dose of blood pressure medicine! While NPR/PBS purported to present both sides of an issue, I found that the manner of presentation often leaned to one side. (Guess which one?) They seemed to feel that by ridiculing or destroying the past, or distorting the present, be it through interpretations by questionable 'experts', or by outright misinformation, they could influence the future.

    Now, “I get all the news I need on the weather report” (thanks Mr. Simon).

    I'll listen to PBS, but they do slant left in their news coverage and opinions. Being taxpayer funded they should be neutral.
    I do enjoy the different music programs, as I have a pretty eccentric taste in music. :)

    There are two FM talk radio stations in Indianapolis, and I switch between the two.

    Greg Garrison 9-12 (93.1 WIBC) or Laura Ingraham 9-12 (95.9 WFDM)
    Rush Limbaugh 12-3 (93.1 WIBC)
    Sean Hannity 3-6 (95.9 WFDM)
    Michael Savage 6-9 (95.9 WFDM)
    Mark Levin 9-11 (95.9 WFDM)
    Jerry Doyle starts at 11, but rarely am I still listening by then (95.9 WFDM)

    Josh,
    I'd love to get a chance to have a sit down talk with Mark Levin. Most people don't realize the depth of knowledge the man has on constitutional law.
    Thats what caused me to start this thread. I went to listen to Levin and I got Dems. :eek:

    Art, you can listen to the Shooting Bench by going here and picking which show you want to listen to.

    The BBC and the PBS are almost on the same level. They both seem to hate America first.
